The Kryten that guest starred in Series 2 was played by David Ross. When Kryten became a regular in Series 3 the role was taken by [[TheOtherDarrin Robert Llewellyn]], which has remained consistent to this day. The old Talkie Toaster of Series 1-2 was voiced by Tony Hawks, but when it appeared briefly in Series 4's 'White Hole' episode it was voiced by the original Kryten [[HeyItsThatGuy David Ross]]. The Series 3 Episode 1 opener explains how Lister was able to rescue the Series 2 Kryten from an astroid, but unable to restore it's former personality, leading to the nature of Series 3's Kryten seeming different. So in Series 4, when Kryten brought back Talkie Toaster, it inherited Series 2 Kryten's abnormal chirbyness or general unawareness of serious matters (hence why Kryten in Series 2 wasn't aware his crew had been dead for years) that made it different from the old Talkie Toaster. The fact that they both have the voice of David Ross could be significantly meaningful. Kryten of Series 4 said he restored the toaster's personality, but who's to say that Kryten didn't accidentally restore to him the personality of his old Series 2 self, that [[FridgeLogic Lister presumably put on file somewhere?]]

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:Rimmer suffers from intrusive thoughts]]
* His low is very different from the other anthropomorphic personifications of his subconscious; and also mentions 'thinking horrible things' (violent and sexual thoughts are very common with intrusive thoughts.)
** He mentions 'voices' in ''Rimmerworld'' as a symptom of his anxiety (intrusive thoughts can sound like your own internal monologue and can be confused or described as voices)
** It would make a lot of sense that he'd have something like that after what he's gone through (might be a side-effect of his self-deprication and abusive family), and would also go hand in hand with his borderline obsessive compulsive behaviour.

* The first retcon may be due to Married!Lister from "Stasis Leak" telling Our!Lister to not see run for your life on the 1989 Earth. Because of this, the timeline is changed so that Our!Lister doesn't go on and marry Kochanski.

* The first retcon may be due to Married!Lister from "Stasis Leak" telling Our!Lister to not see run for your life Run For Your Wife on the 1989 Earth. Because of this, the timeline is changed so that Our!Lister doesn't go on and marry Kochanski.
Kochanski. [note](In a HilariousInHindsight moment, the newest 2012 film version of Run For Your Wife, starring Danny Dyer, took just £602 at the box office and is considered one of the biggest movie turkeys of all time).[/note]
* The events of ""Timeslides"" cause Pre-Accident!Rimmer to be more receptive to his future self in "Stasis Leak" - after all, '''he's already been visited by his future self as a child'''. This makes him listen to his own warnings instead of thinking he's hallucinating. He manages to get put into stasis with Lister during "The End", and is thus alive at the end of "Timeslides"...for a few seconds.
* In the same episode, Rimmer tells Lister about their future selves and Lister's quest to get Kochanski. Realising he needs to Carpe that Diem, '''Past!Lister asks Kochanski out''', leading to their romance before the Radiation Leak. It is now, ironically, Past!Rimmer's forewarned attempt to ''prevent'' the Radiation Leak that causes the drive plate damage which goes on to wipe out the crew. Realising he can't do anything to prevent the leak, he characteristically runs for the hills, taking responsiblity for the damage to the plate, but only so he can go into stasis, as seen above.
* (This one's a bit of a stretch, but bear with us) With the Tension Sheet invented several years earlier, thanks to Lister and Rimmer's meddlings, Thickie Holden (a lifelong fanboy of The Space Corps Test Pilot squad), funds a pet project. Not realising what is meant by a ship that travels at "Glacial speeds", he pours billions of Dollarpounds into the revamping of Red Dwarf, allowing the JMC to hire on a thousand extra crew by the time Lister and Rimmer come aboard, bringing the ship's complement to '''1,169 instead of 169'''. Once Holden discovers that Red Dwarf is a clapped out old mining ship, he pulls any further funding and has his name expunged from the project in embarrassment.
* This minor change also spurs Rimmer's father on to push his sons toward greatness, '''retconning his suicide'''. After all, if Thickie can make it big, why not our Arnold?

to:

* That would make sense with Holly being offline. S/He probably used to manage, and was able to override or ignore, many of the individual systems' dictats. Without Holly, these systems now report directly to the crew with no filter, and without a sentient computer to control them, their output doesn't always make sense.

* So, does that make Lister a subjectivist?

In Series X, there are many references to computers and systems processing or dictating various rules and procedures (eg, the system that gives Howard Rimmer a commendation and not Arnold). The reason we didn't hear about this in earlier seasons is that it wasn't active, at least not in the same way. At some point during the 'interregnum', these systems were brought into play to give some more structure to the Dwarfers' lives, protecting their mental well-being against the increasingly long time stranded in deep space.

[[WMG: [[{{Uninstallment}} Series IX]] was an Ace Rimmer SpinOff.]]
Which is why the guy in the comics shop refers to it as the best series by miles. It was too good for us to see.
